Adding A Library To A NetBeans Project
For example the bcm2835 library for the IO pins.
Include the library header file
When you compile you the compiler also needs to include the library so the libraries object file is added to the final compilation.
Right click the project > Properties > Build > Linker > In the 'Libraries' section press the '…' button > Add Option… > Other Option > Enter your libraries option, e.g.: -lbcm2835
Command line options
For example the mysql libraries require this:
Project Properties > Build > Linker > Compilation Line > Additional Options > paste in this:
`mysql_config --cflags` `mysql_config --libs`
(Note the single quote marks are correct and should be used!)
